I was cleaning my basement yesterday and found a stack of old magazines from many countries, and notably Newsweek and Time . Herewith some excerpts from the Sept 6, 1976 issue, fully 37 years ago. This one is a survey conducted in the U.S.:
Do you favor a comprehensive national health bill?
Yes : 61%à
No : 23%
Do you favor increasing the defense budget?
Yes : 45%
No: 44%
Do you favour registration of all hand guns?
Yes : 65%
No : 30%
Well, history shows how the elected representatives respect the will of its citizens. Yeah, sure.
Then a HEADLINE with the story :
A LONG, HOT SUMMER FOR DETROIT.(reminder this is Sept 1976) This at a time when Detroit was speeding along on all GM, Ford and Chrysler cylinders.
Well, Rogue, what's new? Who was president, which party held power then?
You should have been reading U.S. News instead!
Oh, are you some sort of pack rat? 40 years of magazines?!?

For Rogue : Cost of a gallon of gasoline in 1967 was $1.87 per.

Based on rate of inflation of 2% per year since then (very modest, that 2%, as in some years, it was as high as 18%), cost of a gallon today should be $3.62 per gallon. Well, well, isn't that what it generally is? Now, if you based it on the REAL rate of inflation, imagine what it would be...$4.00, 4.50 a gallon?

Good work, Obama.**

** I know it has little to do with him, but seeing as you blamed him when the gallon cost $4.80 last year, fair is fair, give him credit.

Watchdog Group Sues for Disclosure of White House Meetings with Healthcare Execs / July 23, 2009 / http://tinyurl.com/mby2t4
I want to just talk about some of the names, as they’ve released this, naming some of the healthcare executives who have made multiple trips to the Obama White House.
Richard Umbdenstock, the president of the American Hospital Association, has visited the White House eight times since Obama took office, beginning on February 3rd, two weeks after Obama’s inauguration.
Former Congressman Billy Tauzin has visited five times, now head of the drug industry lobby, the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, known as PhRMA.
Dr. James Rohack, president-elect of the American Medical Association, has visited four times, as has Karen Ignagni, president and CEO of America’s Health Insurance Plans, an industry trade group.
Other healthcare executives who have made multiple visits to the Obama White House include Jeffrey Kindler, CEO of drugmaker Pfizer; Stephen Hemsley, chief executive of UnitedHealth Group; George Halvorson, head of Kaiser Foundation Health Plan; Richard Clark, CEO of the Merck pharmaceutical company; Jay Gellert, CEO of Health Net; and Rick Smith, senior vice president of PhRMA, which Billy Tauzin heads.

Ooooo, the evil private sector. Why does that bother you? It does not seem to both you that trade unions have more access to the White House than any other groups but those evil corporations, why they are just ...evil.
Do you know who owns the worlds largest jet air taxi service, Net Jets? It is Obama's corporate buddy Jimmy Buffet's little brother Warren!
Yep, it is evil for GM, Ford, etc. to own private jets but it is okay for union leaders to fly around on Warren's jets!!!

Several years ago I owned a one-quarter fractional of a Cessna 182. There was several problems. One is that I could not take the plane out for more than three days at a time while one of our co-owners seemed to be a day or two late when he had our plane out.
I mean, I am the type of guy that if I agree to an arrangement, I stick by it. But it seems you always have one guy who thinks he is the exception.
Oh, I took MY plane out for three weeks!!! By I am the sole owner and I can do that. I spent two weeks visiting my mom in Salina, KS and am visiting my daughter this week before I head home.
Mean while my girl friend is visiting her family. Hummm, I'm getting a little horny lately.

Is that so odd, with 40 years of magazines?

Someone like he, is just living in the cave as his calling the basement for 40 years of magazines reading in order to come up with baloney matters saying.

Or else, otherwise, he has fear for being bashed all the time for knowing nothing because he has nothing in his head by reliance on the so old 40 years stuff.

Someone who does not understand English and wants to talk English and about Canada all the time to me is really NUT as you.

YOU STILL DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH EMBARRASSMENT you do to yourself.
You need tougher wording so that you creep to your hiding cave, you the sicko bummer!

Yet, you still are unaware of how silly and big joke it is just by speaking on the English thing.

You come from a lowlife if you don't understand my English because that is where they all do that sorts of lowlife English as all you the ill jerk do know to speak only.

Could you possibly name, with proof, one union leader flying Buffett's jets? Just one for the hell of it. Remember, you said last week you ALWAYS supply links.

Also, you claim that union leaders have more access to the White House than "evil corporations". Are you daf? Also, and as per above, supply a link proving that unions have more access to the White House than corps. Remember, you did write you always supply links. And don't tell me to "learn" how to operate Google and find it myself. You said you supplied links, do it.

No, I can't as I don't save magazines for very long. But Newsweek is noted for it's liberal slant o issues.
But I do recall an issue of Newsweek from late Jul. or early Aug. 1971 as I was in Taiwan and that that edition was censored there. When I got back to Sunny South Vietnam I found that issue and there was an article about Nixon going to Red China. A cartoon had a Oriental an holding a chair fending off a tiger. The chair had "UN" on it and the man was saying,"He wants me and not the chair"!
Oh, in Taiwan I dated a college student and all she wanted to talk about was Nixon's trip. I took her to a movie theater to watch "Love Story" and the theater was huge with three balconies. 10,000 people(?).
Anyway there was no way I was going to get her into bed and the next night a met a dynamite blond teacher from Pittsburgh. I was doing real well until she found out I was only twenty years old! I guess she expected a CW2 helicopter pilot to be older.
Oh, the pilot who landed his Bell 206L in the Hudson River yesterday was only 23. I have done power off landings to the water in Bell 206Bs in training. They had fixed floats as apposed to pop-out floats.
Oh, the B206B with fixed floats could cruise at only 80 Knots as one with pop-outs could cruise at 95 kts. Also landing with floats on hard ground is uncomfortable as the airctaft kind of wallows around while you are starting or stopping the engine.

Your English is so bad and shallow and has no varieties.
You can't do a sentence with more than 10 verbs words with perfect grammar, and forget typos.

You are not used to comprehend some other forms of English.
As was and is, you are insufficient in English by concluding that sort of English is all you know, otherwise it is too difficult for you.

Besides, you are not an intelligent person.

You are so dumb by telling English from all you know as you are not an English specialist nor a professor.

You have not experienced enough in the English in the real practice like in work or others alike in business, no matter how much you have read.

You take those who talk in English here as the real major English or accuracy.

You think they have very good English here on Topix. When they don't understand others' writings, simply they are just like you, who will fail in English class alone.

It was TIME, Rogue, TIME magazine. Pay attention. Did Time harbour a very liberal slant in 1976?

Oh, in the Summer of 1972 I did the re-certification of the OH-58 as the Army models where having problems with a harmonic vibration between the rotors and the tail.
The rotor blades on the OH-38 where non-symmetrical 35 foot blades and the Bell 206 has symmetrical 33 blades. The tail on the OH-58 was also slightly longer.
Anyway we had an OH-58 lose it's tail in flight, both pilots killed, after they got into pylon whirl during a power off landing. I would like to get into all the aerodynamics involved but even most helicopter pilots would have hard time understanding and it would probably take me two weeks teaching helicopter aerodynamics until we would get to that subject. But not many pilots even want to see the video as rotor blades are not suppose to do that. In fact, most people would stop flying helicopters if they saw that video!

My beef with Liberal professors is that if you disagree with them, you fail. This compares to a Conservative professor, who will only tell you were you logic has failed. But he will give you a good grade if you argued your case well.
